Please Login to Remove!
Ok, this is my daughters phone (really really glad its not mine!), it was really really really really really slow, always showing a clock etc, when doing anything so I got the task of seeing why.
I found (eventually) that there was no free memory, it showed 0. I deleted some apps (can you not install apps to SD card?), and now had 17.3Mb free it states.
So I did a software update on the phone and it states up to date. Its on UK network TalkMobile, and is version 6.0 Bundle 2647.
I installed BB Desktop program on my Mac, done a (some sort of), backup on it. It also said then there was a software update available, 6.0 Bundle 2949, tried to update, 1st failing on some Bluetooth database, said continue, but then said can't as need another 13mb free space.
a) how come phone doesn't say theres an update, but desktop software with phone attached does?!?!?
b) how can I delete another 13Mb, as that would mean basically uninstalling everything (reason I know is we've just bought another brand new 9300, and out of the box it has 32Mb memory free, its for the wife....), so how can this be.
I really have had a horrible time tonight trying to fix this phone. if I knew how to back it up properly, contacts etc, then I would factory restore it, but my daughter would go ape, if I did this and her contacts were lost.
Can someone please help, before I throw this thing in the bin!
